Caramelised Onion and Feta Tart


This is a super easy, tasty tart for a light snack or with pre-drinks. I cheated a little and added some of Woolworth’s Onion Marmalade simply because my family loves it and it really did make it just that more flavourful and saves a lot of time and effort.


  • 1 purple onion, sliced
  • salt and pepper, for seasoning
  • 4 tsp sugar
  • 60ml water
  • half a packet ready rolled puff pastry, and flour for rolling
  • 1 egg, for brushing
  • 100 g feta cheese, diced
  • 4 tsp onion marmalade
  • Watercress or Rocket, for decoration



  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C and prepare a baking tray by lining it with baking paper.
  2. Heat a large saucepan with a little oil and fry the onion until brown. Add the water and the sugar and let it simmer until the water is reduced to a thick syrup.
  3. Roll out the pastry on a floured surface according to packet instructions. Cut the sides to make it more even.
  4. Move the pastry to the baking tray and fold the sides over to create an edge. This will prevent the syrup from leaking on to the tray (though a little of mine did still leak).
  5. Scoop the onions on to the tart and be sure to pour the syrup in the centre as it will spread. Place the Feta cheese on top of the onions.
  6. Bake for 15 min or until golden.
  7. Scoop the onion marmalade on the tart once removed from the oven and spread slightly. Decorate with the watercress or rocket and serve.

PS- I only used half of the pack for the tart, so if you plan on making a large tart using the entire packet of pastry you should double the recipe.
